What is Balão
Balão translates literally to balloon with the plural being Balões.
However, that is not what we ususally think of when we refer to a Balão in the capoeira context.
In the capoeira context, a balão, of which there are various, is a type of partner throw that involves acrobatic skills to be developed by both partners that participate in the skill. Mestre Bimba added various balões to his capoeira regional.
He also a sequence of balões that are known as the 'cintura desprezada’ sequence which is a series of ‘balões acinturados’, that graduated students perform while the rhythm of Iúna is played on the berimbau.
